... things that we're open.
In light of not being able to climb the Eiffel Tower I did the next best thing and climbed the Arc de Triomphe. It was great! You could walk all over the top of it, and attain a 360 degree view of Paris! The building itself is adorned with beautiful sculptures and designs. The intense, no line roundabout that encompasses the building is also very interesting! haha
After climbing down and walking back ...
... several suggestions
Of what I could do after I settled in from that long train ride.
I got my 1st crepe (ham & cheeses) down the street from my apartment...with a coke to accompany it...yum!! I couldn't resist a chocolate croissant for dessert, so I purchased one for later. Now, I know that his next thing doesn't sound too cool to do in Paris, but i was in NEED for a real American Movie, in a theater. So, I headed to the Mall (which they call ...
... where the toys are all giant sizes to make it appear that humans are toy sized, Disney is so cool! So we rode the race car from Toy Story and Slinky Dog and the boys did the parachute drop. Then went to the Tower of Terror, this ride was insane, based on The Twilight Zone and set in an crumbling hotel which was made to look like it had been abandoned 50 years ago, right down to luggage, a coat, hat and umbrella at the reception ...
... Luckily, the tower itself was spectacular and the walk up worth it. The views are pretty spectacular and really show you the size of Paris.
Day 2, we opted for a train. After finding our way around Parisian public transport (much easier than cycling) we then set of to get our bearings via a walking tour. This was a great way to get a feel for the size and history of the place. Unlike London, it feels like everything is FOREVER away from ...
... there are murals, tapestries and paintings on the walls and ceilings and much of the furniture is from that period. We saw King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette's bed chambers and the "secret passageway" that connected the two for when a private visitation was required. The famous saying "let them eat cake" was said by Marie Antoinette during the French Revolution but apparently it was said more because of her lack ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Nice Paris
Will stay here again.
My wife and I stayed here in August. We are in our mid fifties and I must say that we liked this hotel. The location is outstanding: one hundred yards from Metro Hotel d'Ville, on the edge of the Marais, across the street from a Saturday A.M. food marche, and 2 short blocks from the river. (3 blocks to the point on Ile de St Louis where you can have your picque-nicque.) Top floor is best (rooms 17 thru 20). English speaking staff most helpful. Parisien standard small rooms for this price range. Four cafes in a small place next door are great but can be noisy with the windows open.
I do not understand why this hotel received such good reviews. Good location and that's basically it. It is kind of OK for low budget travelers. Room small but fine, but shower was terrible - dirty, VERY small with hairs stuck between the tiles and in a shower head. We asked to move us to a different room. Stuff was helpful and they did move us.
New room had a tub which also looked old. It was most unpleasant and stressful time - going to the shower. I would not stay in this hotel again.
Hotel de Nice is the best
The breakfast room is very beautiful and the management is extremely friendly. Although the rooms are small (and the showers REALLY small), the location and the ambience is wonderful.
We found this hotel to be totally charming. It was in a fantastic position, so close to public transport, shops, fantastic restaurants and some major tourist sites. We loved our family room on the top floor, which had an amazing view from the balcony to the streets below.
Great little hotel, very central and reasonable rates, I will stay there again next time I'm in Paris.
After reading positive reviews, I was expecting a quaint hotel room at the Hotel de Nice, effusing Parisian charm. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. The room and bed linens were clean, but the hotel is a bit ramshackle, and our room was miniscule. It was difficult to pass between the end of the bed and the wall. I've lived in France and certainly know to expect smaller spaces, no air conditioning and French aloofness, but this hotel was a disappointment even to this former French resident.
If you haven't visited Paris for the Fete de la Musique, you should. Always on 21 June,music of all sorts (counter tenors to down & dirty) throughout the city until dawn. The atmosphere is very friendly, and if you aren't enjoying Satan's Wristwatch at The Lizard Lounge - we weren't - just move on, there's plenty more - 2 naked trombonists on top of a bus shelter was a distinct improvement.Hotel de Nice is in a splendid location at the bottom of the Marais, 2 blocks from the Isle St Louis, in a busy little square off the Rue de Rivoli. Like many small Paris hotels it is tall and thin; if you can face the underpowered lift, or stairs, we would suggest the higher the better; one of our rooms at the very top had 2 balconies and you could just see the fleche on Notre Dame. The eclectic decor is memorable (and fun) which is more than can be said for the reception staff:Parisienne hauteur with knobs on. At 100 Euros/double we thought it good value; we usually pay much less and accept the atmospheric squalor.
A truely charming and romantic Parisian hotel
What a wonderful little hotel! Its location on the edge of the Marais couldn't be better -Tiny cobbled streets packed with restaurants & shops( Much better than those on the anonymous boulevards close to the the Eiffel Tower). Most rooms come with a wrought iron balcony and ours overlooked a pretty square. The room was quite small (that's not unusual in Paris) - but with handpainted furniture and floral patterned fabrics it was everything I expected a Parisan hotel to be. I have stayed twice and will be going back again.
Charming Noisy Nights
Very nice, charming, but guests coming and going from the cafe below can be on the LOUD side in the middle of the night. Seemed to be a place a lot of motorcycle riders frequent.
A Great Little Hotel
The Hotel de Nice is in a brilliant position on the edge of the Marais district, 2 minutes from a Metro station, and less than 10 minutes at strolling pace from Notre Dame. There are lots of great cafes and restaurants in the area,and plenty of interesting shops (including good supermarkets).
The rooms are charming, comfortable and full of character with lots of unusual decorative touches from the Paris flea markets. Even the wallpaper in my room was worth photographing! i spent several days, and appreciated the good sized room.
I found it great value for money and a really special part of my Paris experience.
